    Keishi Ryu Bokken- Red/White Oak

    Made in Japan (Kyushu)

    Flat Spine | Flat butt | Small Kissaki

    Red Oak or White Oak available

    Keishi Ryu Bokken is manufactured in a single piece of oak (red or white) from the southern islands of Kyushu (Japan). The "Keishi" was created in the late 19th century for the Japanese police. Close to the classical models, but heavier, it is ideal for all types of practice and is an ideal choice for practitioners wanting a heavy and original bokken. It will also be very well suited for Kendo practitioners wishing to learn the Keishi Ryu kata. Due to its weight and balance, its use is close to that of a real katana.

    The Keishi Ryu Bokken is a thick and heavy, but very close to a standard model in its shape and curvature. This model is often proposed to Aikidoka looking for a heavy bokken for practice of Suburi or Tanren work, but also for the same purpose, to Kendoka (including practitioners of the Japanese police). Despite its heavy weight, this model is recommended for all practitioners looking for a thick and heavy bokken. Its thickness allows also to sustain very powerful shocks. It can be ordered with a thick leather Tsuba (it will shrink), as used by some practitioners of Birankai Aikido group.

    • Choice of wood species: red oak, white oak.
    • Available finish: Urethane varnish or camellia oil polish.
    • Manufacturing workshop: Horinouchi for varnished bokken and Nidome for oil polished models.

    Non varnished - Oil polish option (+ 1,000 JPY):

    All our high-end are available either varnished with urethane or polished with camellia oil although they are much more pleasant to the touch as well as use with the latter.
    Unvarnished weapons are more ecologically-friendly, but they requires regular (monthly) maintenance with oil (camellia or wood maintenance oil) and they can only be made from the finest woods of Japanese quality. Given the need for maintenance of these weapons, our stocks are limited. Also, since the craftsmen must select the best wood possible to manufacture these weapons, the processing time is longer than for varnished weapons. If out of stock or made to order, the shipping time can take up to 6 weeks in case of shortage. Please note that the oil finish process can darken the wood significantly.

    About Keishi Ryu:

    Keishi Ryu is not strictly speaking a school of Kenjutsu, it is a style of practice invented in the late 19th century for the training of the Japanese police. This style of kenjutsu kata included ten kenjustu kata, five iaijutsu kata, and sixteen jujutsu kata. The Iai and Jujutsu kata were gradually forgotten, however, the kenjutsu kata are still widely practiced, especially by the many high level kendo instructors present in the Japanese police.
